For the Glacier NP camping on Saturday, 7/26, several of us are camping at the Fish Lake Campground (see the link in the planning link http://bom2014.blogspot.com/).

There are some options noted in the link concerning the Park, but I decided to reserve a campsite. I don't think I'll need any other reservations. But as our planning continues, that may change.

Whats the max on it, within reason, Robert?
Oh we've been thinking of putting a queen/full bunk in there for a while. Right now I have two queens going in there to replace to fulls. It would just add one more space. No biggie really. Would just be a benefit at times like these. A few times a year I can put a few people in that room. 2 or 3 people. Yeah you guys can have the bunk room but still need to get people to rent cabins if others want to camp down there. Don't count on more than two in that room though.

Not familiar with Montana or Idaho, outside of Glacier Park entrance fee, what other park passes do we need to obtain before the ride?

I am in the process of reserving C104 at Fish Lake for 7/26.

Would like to throw out the idea that we have a meeting place the morning we leave from Fish Creek campground. As you enter the park from West Glacier or head out from Fish Creek towards Going to the Sun Road there is a shuttle bus parking area at the junction that would make a good meeting point. If Fish Creek fills up there is also Apgar Campground in the same area.

Someone asked about permits. It will cost $12 to enter the park. There is also a Montana off road permit for the bikes, you will need to purchase one if we are riding off public roads. Public roads include Forest Service roads. They are available from MT Fish Wildlife and Parks online.

Do you need an off road permit if your bike is a plated and registered bike from another state?

Also if "yes"; where do I buy one?

Thanks...Phil

Ps...Friday 25...I will be camping at Yaak...

*Olyrider and I will be in Fish Creek CG C109 Sat 26.....[in case someone plans to bring us beer ]

The route as posted is composed of vehicular roads. Any licensed vehicle is covered. Only "designated trails" would need an OHV permit.

In our state if plated you never need an OHV permit unless you are in a designated "OHV Park"...

Sooooo....In MT and ID do you still need the permit if plated and on "designated trails"? What is a "designated trail" in Mt? Hopefully I plan to take a few "roads least traveled"

And where do you buy the permits?

Thanks!

The simple answer...MT has reciprocity with other state programs.
But, it would be great if you acquired a MT OHV sticker as it helps support the trail maintenance.

http://www.mtvra.com/index.php/misc/legal-info/28-montana-off-highway-vehicle-ohv-laws

http://stateparks.mt.gov/recreation/ohvProgram.html

Identifying OHV trails - obvious vehicle roads (where you can drive your car including 2 tracks), trails as marked (usually limited to under 50", some limited to under 30" - motorcycle only). Registered road vehicles can travel up to 1 mile off of regular roads without an OHV permit (on designated trails, of course). Avoid any trails marked as closed to motorized traffic.

23-2-802. Exemptions. The provisions of this part do not apply to:
(1) an off-highway vehicle:
(a) owned or used by the United States or another state or an agency or political subdivision thereof;
(b) registered in a country other than the United States, temporarily used within this state for not more than 30 days; or
(c) registered in another state of the United States, temporarily used within this state for not more than 30 days; or
(2) a licensed motorcycle or licensed quadricycle used for fishing and hiking access, camping, or picnicking on a visible two-track trail or road within 1 mile of a designated road.

Thumb Many Thanks

Thanks...very clear explanation.

I will buy one to support the program...which I have done in the past here.. not "needed" but appropriate. Besides I dig stickers!

Hey DirtyPatches - I hope your comment "Yay another fellow KLR rider on the BOM1000!!!" doesn't mean - hooray I'll have a parts bike!
Mine's a 2001.

I see Dandemotoman on the list - Last I knew he had a new gen KLR, but I haven't kept up with whats currently in his stable.
